El Dorado Evening Update for September 14

El Dorado Fire Wildfire
News – 9/14/2020

The El Dorado Fire burned actively throughout the day as the topography aligned with upslope wind influence allowing for active head fire runs. Firefighters have built a contingency line between the fire and the Angelus Oaks community to plan for this possibility. Currently, the fire is near Angelus Oaks but burning actively upslope towards San Bernardino Peak (northwest) towards the Lake Fire scar.

Fire activity will remain active overnight due to dry and hot weather with limited relative humidity recovery and a down canyon wind influence. Firefighters are poised and ready to conduct firing operations around Angeles Oaks if needed.  The fire may back downslope gently towards the community. Fire crews are in position to directly attack the fire with both hand lines and hose lines.

There is NO evacuation directive for Big Bear residents at this time!!!

Along Hwy 38, the fire activity continues to slowly back down the slope and burn eastward along Mill Creek. The fire line behind Forest Falls continues to hold and firefighters continue to  work in and around this community. Fire crews continue working to secure the fire line along Mill Creek from Vivian Creek to last month’s Apple Fire scar.  

Residents of Mountain Home, we continue to ask for your patience.  Our work in and around your community is not complete yet.  Power lines are still down and we ask that you stay away from your homes for a little longer
